There is a new technology preview on Autodesk Labs.

 

http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/civil3d_river/

 

Project River Analysis Extension for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2012 software and AutoCAD® Map 3D® 2012 is a sophisticated river modeling software package supports HEC-RAS within the AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 environment. This technology preview of River Analysis makes it easier than ever before to compute water surface profiles for modeling rivers, bridges, culverts, spillways, levees, floodplain and floodway delineations, stream diversions, channel improvements, and split flows.

River Analysis is a technology preview that runs on AutoCAD Map 3D and/or AutoCAD Civil 3D.

Hey.  Sorry to jack this, but your name has a little NNTP logo next to it here.  Does that mean you're browsing this DG with a newsreader?  If so, can you let me in on it?

 

Web still sux.

I would assume it had to do with the source of my account during the transition, but I have no idea.  Web and RSS is it.

hm.  well, back on track, I wish the river extension was made available for C3D 2011.  I'd like to check it out but I doubt it'd be worth updating to 2012 to do so.  We use steltman's rivertools.

Hello

 

How can I draw the rivers/reachs? are they polylines, alignments...?

 

Thanks

On launch of River Analysis, the Reach object is created.  The abilitity to create, edit, and delete Reaches are on the Ribbon Panel.  

 

When creating the automated sections, the Streamcenterline is a polyline.

I have been using Boss RiverCAD for floodplain analysis and design the past few years. I installed River analysis Extension immediately. It looks pretty good so far. The first thing I realized was that the previous drawing files I used with Boss RiverCAD are not recognized once you open with RAE. I had to import files from Hec-RAS.prj files and it ran as a champion! I am testing a few things one at a time. I am excited to give my input to make this program flawless! This will be a huge boost for Civil 3D towards H&H interface.
